morning and we are likely to hear something about that from both president obama as rocky. we are writing to a year from a romney and paul brian. they are here -- from mitt romney and paul ryan. we address that they will take an interview with sean hennessey for his program after their release this evening. -- sean hannity for his program after their rally this evening. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ." ♪ ♪ hacke♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> it is good to be in fishersville, virginia tonight. ♪ ♪ >> thank you. it is good to be here with you tonight. thank you. there is -- there are some marine friends of mine somewhere here tonight. i never had written a song before about one particular brand of not of -- of military. last year, i wrote this. this is my feeble attempt to pay tribute to the marine corps. ♪ he sat in that long line of barber chairs and the sergeant asked him "son, would you like to keep your hair?" he said "yes sir" as he heard those clippers buzz and hum the sergeant said "well hold out your hands, here it comes" semper fi do or die so gung-ho to go and pay the price here'
obama -- i do not think he did as badly as the pundits are saying this morning. i think the next debates, he will probably have a different demeanor. i think the debate last night was much more important to miss -- to mitt romney and barack obama. i do not know how much this really changes the landscape, because this race is very competitive. if you look at the eight battleground states, depending on the polls, president obama is winning on all of them, but the margins are pretty close. i think the other thing that debates could do for the democrats and the president and also for the voters, for our side, too, it signals the date is on, and you will see much more enthusiasm. people talk about the enthusiasm gap. a firm that does the polling for nbc news, within one sub group, latinos -- of au are the conspiratoria left-wing appalling -- >> barack obama had 50% with latinos, the poll is their enthusiasm was less than in 2008. >> glen, my thinking had been while it was inadequate -- mathematically possible for romney to get to 270 electoral votes without ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, that
, we will hear from another third-party presidential candidate to join us on this morning's "washington journal." what do you bring to the table? >> how about truth for starters. the notion that both obama and romney are arguing over who is going to spend more money on medicare would need to have a reading debate and discussion on this country on how we slash medicare spending because if we do not, i believe we will find ourselves in the midst of a monetary collapsed as a result of continuing to borrow and spend money to the tune of 43 cents out of every dollar we spend. host: so what do you see on that particular issue? what is your prescription? pardon the expression. >> i oversaw the or form of medicaid in the mexico when i was governor of new mexico. we ticket from a fee-for- service model to a managed-care model. we saved hundreds of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively overse
